This is your one-stop shop for all the weekend's happenings, including concerts, movies and sporting events throughout South Florida.

Music

Ska band Less Than Jake rocks the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale this Saturday at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are just $19.50 each.

Movies

Here's a look at this week's new releases:

Thirty years after the Stephen King movie "Pet Sematary" was released, the remake opens Friday in theaters everywhere. The new movie flips the script a bit this time, even though the previews kind of give it away to those who are fans of King's 1983 novel or the original movie.

A different kind of superhero is making his big-screen debut in "Shazam!" Zachary Levi plays the titular character, while Asher Angel of Disney Channel fame stars as his character's child alter-ego.

Emilio Estevez (who also serves as writer and director), Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater star in "The Public," an ensemble drama about a group of homeless library patrons who organize a sit-in during a Cincinnati snowstorm. Miami's own Gabrielle Union co-stars.
